The tiny town of Dunes City, Oregon is the perfect home base to explore some of the most majestic scenery along the Oregon Coast! While the town itself may be small, a weekend in a Dunes City vacation rental opens up a whole world of possible adventures. The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is right outside your door, so you can try your hand at sand-boarding or go for a dune buggy ride.
The town also sits on the shore of Siltcoos Lake, the largest coastal lake in the state! The lake is famous for record-setting fish, including salmon, perch, bass, and trout. Spend an afternoon on your boat or kayak, or head out for a full day exploring the Siltcoos River Canoe Trail.
Need even more options for outdoor recreation? Head out for a hike in the surrounding Siuslaw National Forest, or spend the day in Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park, just north of town. For dining and shopping, comparatively bustling Florence, Oregon is less than eight miles away.
